Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Soneela Nankani

Children Ages 8+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Soneela Nankani delivers an animated performance in this audiobook about a girl's search for her father, who is missing in the Dark world. Maya's father, an Orisha, is tasked with maintaining the veil between the human world and the Dark in order to stop the Lord of Shadows from destroying humankind. As a half-Orisha, Maya must figure out how to use her newfound powers and brave the Dark to rescue her father. Added sound effects of intense winds, mysterious creatures, and magical light create an intense and memorable listening experience. Nankani's emotional connection and pace will delight listeners of all ages. A.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
